The regulation of trade in goods is at the heart of the EU-Korea FTA. This chapter analyses the provisions of the Agreement relating to market access, including rules on customs duties, classification, valuation, rules of origin, quantitative restrictions, and trade facilitation. The chapter also looks at the innovative ways in which the FTA addresses non-tariff barriers through its provisions on market regulation. The author highlights the sectoral approach of the FTA to market regulation, with its specific provisions on consumer electronics, motor vehicles and parts, chemicals, and pharmaceutical products. It is explained how the degree of integration differs in each of these sectors. Moreover, the author also notes that the FTA is a living instrument, as lacunae in the field of domestic regulation must be dealt with in the future through cooperation and consultations within the different committees and working groups.
